Whether you’re looking for a Ford Fiesta or a Tesla Model S, Fair App is the new way to lease the car of your choice.
Designed to be flexible and user-friendly, this app is changing the way that drivers lease vehicles.
More than 30% off all cars in the United States are leased. Dealerships and car manufacturers offer great incentives for those who prefer to lease rather than buy. With little or no money down, you can drive off the lot in a brand new ride. And you can trade it in for another brand new car when your lease is up.
So what makes Fair App different than a traditional car lease?
What does it cost?
How does it work?
How does it help Uber drivers make more money?
Today we’re answering those questions and more in our complete guide to Fair App.
What is Fair App?
Fair is an app that allows you to lease a car right from your smartphone.
You’ll never have to shop for a car at a dealership. You won’t have to spend hours filling out paperwork and financing forms.
Fair leases used and certified pre-owned cars. All cars available for rental through the platform are less than six years old and have less than 70,000 miles.
But what’s the difference between leasing through Fair or leasing through a dealership?
When you lease a car through a dealership, you usually have to lock into a lease for 36 or 48 months.
What makes Fair App so unique is that you won’t be locked into any lease at all. You can rent a car for two months or two years – it’s completely up to you. Whenever you decide that you no longer want to drive the vehicle, you can just return it. It’s as simple as that.
This flexibility to lease a car for a short time makes Fair an attractive option for many drivers.
A lot of drivers don’t want to have to commit to making years of monthly lease payments. And some people don’t want to have to drive the same vehicle for years at a time.
Fair is perfect for drivers who need a long-term rental service but don’t want to have to deal with car sharing apps or traditional rental services.
How Much Does Fair App Cost?
Every car on Fair App has a “start payment” fee. This is an upfront fee that you have to pay before you can access the car and drive it off the lot.
The start payment fee varies depending on the type of car you choose. This upfront fee ranges from as little as $500 to as high as several thousand dollars, depending on the car make, model, year, and mileage.
In addition to the start payment fee, you’ll also have to pay a monthly fee. The start payment fee, however, ensures that you’ll have the lowest monthly rates possible for the duration of your lease.
Should you decide that you don’t like and don’t want to keep driving your leased vehicle, you have up to 3 days or 100 miles to get your start payment fee back.
Once you’re beyond three days or 100 miles (whichever comes first), the start payment fee becomes non-refundable, and you can never get that back.
Keep that in mind – especially if you lease a car that you’ve never actually driven before.
Every car handles differently. So if you’re not satisfied with your lease, make sure you return it right away before the “No Risk Return” policy runs out.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you can’t just lease and return cars every other day to keep getting your start payment back. Fair allows only one full refund of a start payment every 12 months.
Whether you return your vehicle within three days or lease it for three years, you’ll need to pay a new start payment fee for every new vehicle that you lease.
What Cars Are Available on Fair App?
With over 30 brands and 35,000 cars to choose from, Fair App offers a wide selection of vehicles offered by dealerships in your area.
You can lease a small two-door coupe, a luxury four-door sedan, a pickup truck, an SUV, a hybrid, and just about any type of vehicle you desire.
You can ride in total style in an Aston Martin or a Bentley. Or, you can drive something more understated and affordable, such as a Honda, a Nissan, a Toyota, or a Hyundai.
The “start payments” range from several hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on the car you choose. The monthly payments vary as well.
Looking to keep your expenses to a minimum?
You can find a monthly payment from as low as $95 per month for a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage DE.
Prefer to ride around in the lap of luxury? You can take on monthly payments as high as $3,900+ for an extravagant ride such as a 2019 Lamborghini Urus.
How Does Fair App Work?
Fair App is incredibly easy to use.
Dealerships can sign up to list and offer cars through the service. Drivers can browse cars on the app to find the one they want and create an account to complete the rental process when they’re ready to lease.
Once you pick the car you want to rent, you’ll need to provide some basic information (like your driver’s license number) as well as the details of your bank account.
Fair does a “soft credit check” to determine whether or not you can make the monthly payments. You’ll need an active bank account in your name to get past this stage of the rental process.
Based on your bank account activity, Fair will determine how much they think you can afford to pay each month. At that point, they’ll provide you with a variety of vehicle options that they’re willing to lease to you, based on your financial information.
Pick your car from the offered selections. Once you select your car, you’ll receive the terms and contract on your phone. Sign for it right then and there to complete the leasing process.
Once you’ve signed the contract, the Fair App team will coordinate when and where you can pick up your vehicle.
Before you create an account and lease with Fair, there are a few other things you should know:
For most cars, the standard base mileage allowance is 10,000 miles per calendar year. (Some vehicles may be a bit more or a bit less). The average mileage allowance for most cars breaks down to 27.4 miles per day.
But for drivers who know they’re going to drive more than 10,000 miles per year, Fair offers the option to buy extra miles. When you checkout, you’ll see an option to add extra miles. If you don’t use the extra miles you purchased, Fair will reimburse you for them.
Make sure you purchase your extra miles at checkout – once you pass the checkout point, they can no longer be added.
Wear and Tear
Drivers are responsible for damages to the car that Fair deems to be excess wear and tear. That includes cracks, scratches, and torn upholstery on the seats. (Minor dings and dents are considered normal wear and tear).
If you’re worried about having to pay for excess wear and tear when you return your car, Fair offers excess wear and tear protection at checkout.
Drivers are also responsible for vehicle maintenance throughout the duration of their lease.
When you lease your car, Fair will provide you with a maintenance agreement that details how much maintenance coverage you have.
Uber drivers using the vehicle for ridesharing get eight maintenance appointments per year.
All other drivers get two maintenance appointments per year.
Fair App Rentals for Uber Drivers
If you’re an Uber driver in California, Fair App just might become your new best friend.
Uber has partnered with Fair to lease cars to drivers and provide some pretty incredible incentives along the way. Unfortunately, at this time, this option is limited to California drivers only.
The Fair app process works differently for Uber drivers than for regular customers.
Here’s what it entails:
As an Uber driver, you won’t have to pay the start payment fee. Instead, you’ll pay Fair a $185 refundable security deposit.
In addition, you’ll pay $185 per week + tax for the rental of your car. This fee includes the rental, insurance, and unlimited mileage. It also includes roadside assistance, a limited warranty, and routine maintenance for the vehicle.
Uber drivers that rent a vehicle with Fair can enjoy some pretty incredible incentives directly from Uber.
Uber offers drivers bonus payments based upon how many Uber rides they do per week. In fact, you can put up to an extra $120 in your pocket every week just for leasing a car through Fair.
Here’s how the incentives work:
If you give 70 Uber rides per week, Uber will reward you with $185. That basically means that your rental is free – you’ll just have to pay a few dollars in taxes.
If you do more than 120 Uber rides in a week, they will reward you with $305.
That means they’ll completely cover the cost of your rental and you’ll have an extra $120 bucks in your pocket.
If you’re an Uber driver that averages 20 rides per day six days a week, this is a great way to make some extra money without having to do any extra work. Just by renting through Fair, you can significantly increase your earnings each and every week.
Not all cars are available to Uber drivers.
Some of the most common cars Fair makes available to Uber drivers include:
- Toyota Corolla
- Nissan Versa
- Nissan Altima
- Hyundai Elantra
- Hyundai Sonata
- Honda CR-V
Leasing a car through Fair offers Uber drivers a variety of other benefits as well.
For starters, if you don’t own a car that meets the Uber vehicle requirements, Fair can provide you with a vehicle that does.
Tired of putting wear and tear on your own car? Rent a vehicle through Fair, and you’ll keep your own car in better working condition longer.
Ready to see if you can earn those Uber incentives by leasing through the Fair App?
Try it out by renting a vehicle for one week. You can renew the lease when the week is up or return the car on the 8th day if you do not want to keep it.
The Fair App Referral Program
Uber drivers aren’t the only ones who can earn incentives by leasing a vehicle with Fair. Any customer that has a current lease can participate in the Fair referral program.
Customers will receive a unique referral code that they can share with friends and family.
If a new customer signs up with your referral code, they can save $100 off their start payment fee. In return, you can earn a $100 Visa gift card.
Unfortunately, this offer has its limitations – you can only earn up to 5 referrals per year for a total of $500 in Visa gift cards. It’s also subject to change at any time.
The Fair App is great for drivers who need to lease a vehicle but don’t want to commit to 3 or 4 years of monthly payments.
It’s easy to use. All your documents will be sent to your phone, so you’ll never have to waste a day negotiating a financing agreement with a dealership.
With thousands of cars to choose from, Fair makes it possible to drive any car you want, for as long as you want. You just need to be able to make the monthly payments. And if you’re an Uber driver in California, it’s definitely worth checking out. Just renting a car through Fair can put as much as $120 extra dollars in your pocket every week!
